In brief: Cough, poor growth
Common symptoms of cystic fibrosis include cough, wheeze, recurrent lung infections, poor growth, foul smelling stools, salty sweat, clubbing, and rectal prolapse.
The more symptoms the greater the chance of having cystic fibrosis. Most infants today are diagnosed by newborn screening for CF before they develop any symptoms and early therapy can minimize disease symptoms.
